General Guide


Here you will find information for (non-)partner institutions and for students


Before nominating your student(s), you will need to request a User (USP Code) and a password.

1 - ACCESS SYSTEM REQUEST FORM (by the Exchange Coordinator/Study Abroad Advisor)

Please contact us in order to request your User (USP Code):

Choose the subject "University Nomination - Request International Access" by "type", select Solicitação (Request)

When sending your request, please inform the following details: title, position and name of the home institution.

Note that this procedure is necessary only if you do not have a User (USP Code) yet

Your request will be reviewed and you will be emailed a link and further instructions on how to generate your own personal password which must consist of letters, numbers and special characters (minimum of 8).


Login > International Students > Add New Student.

Your student will be emailed a link to access the system and complete their application.

You can follow the status of the application of your students by logging in and clicking on "International Students" on the left menu.


Once you have been nominated by your Exchange Coordinator/Study Abroad Advisor, you will be emailed a link to complete your details, upload the supporting documents and submit your application. After submitting your application, it will be reviewed and forwarded to the relevant school(s) which offer(s) the courses that you chose. From this point on your application will be handled on a decentralized basis. Your application will be assessed and after admission you will receive an acceptance letter directly from the local international office operating at the faculty level.

N.B.: Most bachelor's degrees and teacher education programmes at USP are either 4-, 4½- or 5-year programmes without having a combined master's degree. At the Brazilian postgraduate level the so-called stricto sensu postgraduate programmes - even the professional ones - are divided into two levels: mestrado (master's degree) and doutorado (doctoral/ PhD degree), which may differ in structure and nature from the ones offered abroad and therefore international students enrolled in subjects whose curricula at their home institutions are structured in a different, hence asymmetric way, e.g. Bologna second-cycle (Master's) degrees, may be highly recommended to attend courses at USP preferably at the undergraduate level. Nominations and applications of students eligible for postgraduate courses must be sent by email according to country of origin.
